Abstract

The study of newly evolved genes has long fascinated biologists, but large-scale studies of their expression dynamics and molecular function have provided conflicting interpretations of their biological impact. In this issue of Genes & Development, Kondo and colleagues (pp. 1841–1846) use extensive transcriptomic resources and current CRISPR/Cas9 technology to re-examine the functional impact of newly evolved genes in Drosophila and find evidence of their biological impact on male reproduction.
